Hannover Messe – Day 4 – I went to see Optris, the Berlin-based company presents a new addition in its product range, simply the smallest VGA-resolution infrared camera worldwide.
After the optris® PI Lightweight last year, Optris GmbH presents the next novelty in the online thermal imaging market for the second year running at this year’s Hannover industrial fair HMI. “Our superior quality products are ideal for integration in industrial and R&D processes. What’s more, the PI 640 offers an excellent price/performance ratio”, enthused Optris GmbH’s general manager Dr.-Ing. Ulrich Kienitz about this latest innovation from his company.
Plugged into a windows based tablet
For optimal process integration the new camera comes with the license-free application software optris® PI Connect. This easy-to-use software enables users to monitor and document measurements and to edit infrared video imagery. At Hannover Messe it was simply plugged into a tablet running under Windows OS. In the so-called industry 4.0 context, this portable device can communicate with Siemens numerical control and allows a prefect monitoring of temperature anywhere thus guaranteeing industrial processes.
Compact temperature measuring device
With a body sized 45x56x90 mm and weighing only 320 grams (lens included), the optris® PI 640 counts among the most compact thermal imaging cameras on the market. Compared to other cameras of a similarly small size, it is the only one that permits recoding of radiometric video imagery at 32 Hz and a VGA resolution of 640×480 pixels. It offers a thermal sensitivity of 75 mK. At ambient temperatures between 0 and 50°C, it can measure temperatures ranging from -20°C to 900°C.
